SoBo charges 20% fee per transaction, with a minimum of NOK 20 spent amount per transaction. If you choose to utilize Stripe , you will be charged a 2.4% + 2kr for norwegian cards and 2.9% + 2kr for international cards processing and transaction fee of the SoBo purchases. These fees include an insurance for your garments during rental period and a purchase protection.
As a condition of SoBo enabling payment processing services through Stripe, you agree to provide SoBo accurate and complete information about you and your business, and you authorize SoBo to share it and transaction information related to your use of the payment processing services provided by Stripe.
Once you have booked an item and made payment to the lender, you can contact the lender to cancel a rental booking. Your payment less the transaction fee is returned to you in this case. Please bear in mind that doing unnecessary cancellations often can lead to bad reviews and affect your reputation in the community.
Transaction fee by SoBo includes an insurance for your item during the rental period. The agreement lists all conditions under which the insurance is valid.
The insurance does not cover damage:
caused by wear and tear, gradual deterioration, faults or defects in the object.
In case of damage to the item, both lender and renter need to write and sign a damage report and send it to SoBo Community AS immediately. The SoBo team will consider repairing the item, if possible. If beyond repair, the lender will have the possibility to get paid with the replacement value less the number of rentals the item has been through. The renter will pay the excess of 10% of the insured sum.
The insurance does not cover theft. The renter in this case has to pay full replacement value for the stolen item to the lender.
